NewTek TriCaster & NDI Power Hybrid Learning
An article recently posted on Sound&Video Contractor online discusses how Cranfield University is using NDI and NewTek TriCaster to power hybrid learning. Cranfield University converts entire AV production infrastructure to NDI® driven by flagship TriCaster 2 Elite to manage online class video production.
TriCaster 2 Elite is a more flexible approach to digital media production. With TriCaster 2 Elite, content creators can integrate current and future resources into digital media production models that employ standard network infrastructures. TriCaster 2 Elite supports distributed operation with access to more media formats, enablement of more workflow possibilities, and providing more business opportunities.
NewTek, the leader in IP-based video technology and NDI, the world’s preferred technology for moving media-over-IP, both part of the Vizrt Group, today announce that Cranfield University has chosen the NewTek TriCaster® video production system and NDI® to deliver professional quality live online classes.
With NDI® as the single interconnected production environment and TriCaster managing and controlling the range of production equipment, together the technology formed the perfect solution to help Cranfield University deliver professional-looking live, online broadcasts for students.
"When scoping the studio-build, we ran with the vision to live-stream to the whole campus, and looked around for technology to enable this. NDI technology was the obvious contender due to its cost-effectiveness from multiple campus locations, as well as its ease of use." -Dr. Toby Thompson, Studio Director of Cranfield University Broadcast and Record
Cranfield started out with a TriCaster Mini and used it with NewTek TalkShow VS 4000, which is a multi-channel video calling system designed to simultaneously connect up to four remote guests in real time. Due to increased demand and success of the production studio, the University team now opted to upgrade to NewTek’s premium TriCaster 2 Elite, which provides greater functionality and capabilities.
"Just switching your camera ‘on’ is no longer sufficient: what’s shown must look professional if students are to take your online efforts seriously. By embracing the NDI® and TriCaster approach we’ve delivered technical innovations in line with Cranfield University’s technology mission; we’ve launched a new professional standard for live-online video production; and we’ve built the foundation of a new revenue stream for live online education at Cranfield." -Dr. Toby Thompson, Studio Director of Cranfield University Broadcast and Record
